In a recent survey conducted by "U.S. News & World Report," the Russian army has earned the distinction of being declared the most formidable military force globally. This recognition stems from an in-depth evaluation of countries' military capabilities, as determined by participants in a global survey, particularly in the "Strength" sub-category.

The United States secured the second position in this comprehensive global ranking of military power, with China following closely in third place. Israel's military prowess earned it the fourth position, while South Korea emerged as the fifth-ranked nation.

Ukraine, a country that has been in the global spotlight due to geopolitical tensions, secured the sixth place. Notably, other prominent nations like Iran, Great Britain, Germany, and Turkey also found themselves among the top ten military powers globally.

Expanding the scope beyond military rankings, in the broader context of the overall "best countries" list, Russia secured the 37th rank among a total of 87 nations. Topping this comprehensive list were Switzerland, Canada, and Sweden.

The rankings were derived from an extensive survey that involved the participation of 17,000 individuals from various corners of the world. This survey was conducted between March 17 and June 12 and encompassed a selection of 73 attributes that characterize a nation and significantly contribute to its overall success and influence on the global stage.

These rankings serve as a window into the multifaceted realm of global geopolitics. They not only shed light on the military might of nations but also unveil the intricate tapestry of international relations and the nuances of national reputations.

The survey results offer an expansive panorama of how individuals from diverse backgrounds and regions perceive countries through the lens of an extensive array of attributes. In doing so, they illuminate the complex dynamics that define global politics and diplomacy in the 21st century.

This global perception goes beyond raw military power, encapsulating the multifarious elements that shape a nation's standing and influence on the world stage, from culture and innovation to economic strength and political leadership.
